Welcome to Gordano Valley Archers

COSE 2016 West of England Club of the Year

f23811c99d03543abe9480cf6.jpgWe are a very open and friendly Archery Club based on the edge of the Gordano Valley at The Downs School in Wraxall, North Somerset.

Our vision is to promote and develop the sport of archery and to provide a safe and welcoming environment for all.

We aim to achieve this by ensuring we have a highly motivated and professional team of coaches and officials dedicated to the principles of equitable practice.

The club is committed to providing archery as an all inclusive sport and actively promotes the sport as a Triple A sport for all the family. Triple A = All Ability Archery.

We shoot throughout the year on Sundays at our ground as well as having an indoor facility from October to March that we use on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings when the weather does not permit outdoor shooting.

Archery Session Cancellation

Please note that due to the current weather conditions it has been decided to cancel ALL sessions today.

We are really sorry for any inconvenience.

Hopefully  you are well and the weather is not causing you too much inconvenience.

St Patrick’s Day Tournament – Postponed

Amber Warning

Unfortunately An Amber Weather Warning with moderate impact has been issued for snow and sub zero temperatures. The snow has started to pitch earlier than predicted.

With the tournament being a longer 8 dozen round, it is probably better to postpone, even if the snow fall is light.

The school Easter holidays commence on Friday, so we will have to carefully consider the rescheduled date.
